On Wednesday the 16th of March, 130 people in the agricultural industry came together for the annual MacIntyre Valley Field Day at ‘Turkey Lagoon’.
Ag Spray Centre was there displaying our Bogballe fertiliser spreader and our popular 180 litre Flashvats.
A highlight of the day was a demonstration of Swarm Farm’s autonomous sprayer. Everyone was intrigued to see the robot in action and hear from the owner, Gus McClymont, about his experience with it.
Gus said that despite a few teething issues with mapping paddocks accurately, the robot was working well and proving to be cost-effective.
The robot has innovative features including notifying the farmer when it’s running low on chemical, approaching an obstacle or when it has any faults.
The sprayer on the Swarm Farm bot was built by us at Ag Spray Centre. It has an 1800 litre capacity with a 12-metre boom. We are building more later in the year out to 18 metres.
In the afternoon, a panel-style discussion was held covering issues on employment in the agricultural industry. The speakers gave useful tips on how to get good workers and more importantly, how to keep them.
Thank you to the MacIntyre Valley Field Day Committee for organising an equally insightful and entertaining day, whilst also assimilating some of the latest ag technology around the region.
